Delafield Offers Lake Fun for Outdoor Enthusiasts
Halfway between Milwaukee and Madison in Southeastern Wisconsin, Delafield awaits outdoors lovers who are looking for fun on the water. Over 30 shimmering lakes in an area aptly named “Lake Country” surround this lively city, of around 7,000 residents. Boaters and fishermen can spend long days on the water enjoying the area’s natural beauty. When they return to land, they will also discover the many wonderful events and attractions that Delafield has to offer its summer visitors.
Fun on the Water with Boating and Fishing
Serious fishermen have been attracted to this rich and vibrant area for years. Two separate boat launches at Naga-Waukee County Park provide access to Lake Nagawicka and Pewaukee Lake with opportunities to hook Muskie, Northern Pike, Bluegill, Crappie, Walleye, and Large & Small Mouth Bass. Local bait shops offer a full selection of fishing rods, tackle, and bait as well as expertise on local fishing spots.
Sailing, Kayaking, Canoeing, Waterskiing
Including Lake Nagawicka, which runs along the edge of Delafield’s historic downtown business district, there are over 30 nearby lakes, including Upper and Lower Nemahbin, that have public boat launches. For those who enjoy a little exploring, the Department of Natural Resources owns a public kayak/canoe launch on Lower Nemahbin Lake (off Sugar Island Road), which connects to the Bark River for a scenic and calm paddling trip. For a decidedly more high-speed adventure, try tubing or waterskiing in the clear and clean waters.
Family Friendly Beach
Lake Nagawicka in Naga-Waukee County Park offers a great opportunity for sand castles and sunbathing along its 130 ft. stretch of beach. A full-time lifeguard, concession stand, and changing facilities make it a family-friendly destination from June- August.
Shopping, Restaurants, and More
Delafield has even more to offer once visitors come back to land! Locally-owned brew houses and eateries, inviting coffee shops, and upscale restaurants are plentiful. One-of-a-kind boutiques featuring jewelry, home décor, and gourmet chocolate are joined by popular regional and national retailers. Nearby museums like Hawk’s Inn, Delafield’s own fully restored stagecoach stop, and the always-popular Old World Wisconsin give families a glimpse into the 1800s. Festivals like the Delafield Block Party, which is two days of music and fun, and the annual Lake Country Art Festival, which hosts over 1,500 juried artists, are highlights in Delafield’s calendar of summer events.
This inviting city also makes the perfect home base for southeastern Wisconsin’s most popular regional events. Going to Summerfest? Skip the parking and driving hassles. Stay in Delafield and ride the shuttle all the way to the festival’s main gate! Or travel just 30 minutes down I-94 to take in a Milwaukee Brewers baseball game.
Delafield offers a variety of accommodations for its guests: the luxurious and upscale Delafield Hotel that is close to the Williamsburg styled downtown, the popular Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites and La Quinta Inn & Suites, and the locally-owned Country Pride Inn. If sleeping under the stars is more your style, reserve a campsite in Naga-Waukee County Park.
